Kick to Space with Numbers

Focus
Front & Square.
Skills
Kick Long.
Purpose
Kicking to a player who is leading at 45 degrees is a difficult skill, as players must judge their teammate's speed and angle, and put the ball to a spot they can run onto. This drill practices kicking to players leading at 45 degrees, both defensively and into attack with the flight of the ball. Working in pairs, the second player must put themselves in the best position to receive a handball.

  • Step 1

    (Pair A) starts by kicking to pair (B)
    (B) leads wide and defensively
    Players should kick so the leading player can run onto the ball, and not have to wait under it
  • Step 2

    (B) marks and their partner can either work in front to receive the handball, or around the back. They then run hard, bouncing if required, before kicking long out in front of leading pair (C)
    Don't let players 'cheat' and just come across the front all the time - receiving around the back is a more realistic play.
  • Step 3

    Pairs (C) and (D) and (A) repeat the actions of pair (B) to complete the loop.
  • Step 4

    Introduce more balls to increase the intensity
